Card TextEdit


"Before a friendly squadron with Escort at distance 1 suffers damage during an attack, you may reduce the total damage by 1. If you do, choose a friendly squadron with Escort at distance 1. That squadron suffers 1 damage."

Icon SQKey Bomber Bomber. (While attacking a ship, each of your Icon Dice Crit icons adds 1 damage to the damage total and you can resolve a critical effect.)

Icon SQKey Escort Escort. (Squadrons you are engaged with cannot attack squadrons without Escort unless performing a Counter attack.)

Rules Clarification Edit

While resolving Biggs Darklighter’s ability, you cannot choose a friendly squadron that has been destroyed but is still in the play area because of General Rieekan’s card effect.
